    Unfortunately, the tutorial on the website above, didn't work on Ahimsa Theme. Is there anybody else who has another clue? Or who can help me...

    voyagerlife, Ahimsa does not have built in support for footer widgets i.e., no widget container ("sidebar" equivalent) in the footer. If you want to hack it up yourself or if you just want to add a banner, I suggest you add the code to footer-custom.php, rather than footer.php, because changes in footer-custom.php (from Ahimsa 3.1 onwards) are preserved during theme upgrade (for *nix systems).

    You can add a banner simply by adding to footer-custom.php:


    <center>
    <img src='......' ........other attributes .... />
    </center>
